It's hard to strike a balance with muffins, isn't it? The massive monstrosities available at the coffee shops are obviously bad news, and even mini muffins are dangerous because there's a good chance you'll eat too many at once. Even if you find a reasonably sized muffin, it will leave you feeling hungry. How do you solve this conundrum? You don't need to know the muffin man, just have a box of cake mix in your pantry! Yes, you heard it right! BOXED CAKE MIX, People! These muffins are delicious, low in calories, and incredibly filling, thanks to addition of pumpkin puree. And don't chocolate chips make just about everything better? Make a batch of these muffins now, and you'll be smiling for days. And yes, eating chocolate first thing in the morning is generally a bad idea, but not with these muffins. So tasty, so satisfying, and perfect any time of day. Make them and thank me later!
